About Me

Chertsey, Surrey, United Kingdom
Hello, I'm Jill - mother of three grown up children and wife to Geoff. I have been crafting one way or another for as long as I can remember. In the1990's I discovered quilling and in 2009 I began selling my quilled card designs online (https://folksy.com/shops/PaperDaisyCardDesign) - this continues to go from strength to strength. My blog "Paper Daisy Cards" features my handmade cards, quilled or otherwise! More recently I re-discovered rubber stamping and became an Independent Stampin' Up! demonstrator, showcasing and selling high quality paper crafting materials including rubber stamps, inks, cardstock, punches and dies. My blog "Paper Daisy Crafting" features my creations made with Stampin' Up! products, a list of all the papercrafting classes I run, all the latest news and offers and a link to my online shop , so that you too can join in the fun!

Paper quilling golden wedding card

Hello everyone,

I'm back again to show you another special order card. This customer wanted a large card for her parents golden wedding anniversary. She originally asked for an A4 card as she wanted room for lots of people to sign it, but I couldn't figure out how to do that and I felt that any quilling would look a bit lost on a card that size. So I suggested that maybe a 3 panel, concertina style card might be suitable, especially if it was a bit bigger than I'd normally make. She asked for the card to incorporate some gold, including gold ribbon, and burgundy. This is what I came up with:

The hearts were also the customer's idea. Each panel of the card measures 8" x 8". Here is a close up of each panel:

Here is a close up of the quilling. I don't think it shows up particularly well but the flowers are made with gold edged papers.

I added blank panels on the reverse so there was plenty of room for everyone to sign.

I am hoping the customer is pleased with it - I'm not sure it will have arrived yet as it was going to Australia.

I'm very excited about this weekend as I will be attending another workshop with the wonderful quiller, Diane Boden. So hopefully I'll have some lovely creations to showcase on here next week.
